At this point I should have seen it coming, but...well...nope. I go check on the 1/2 board (it's way in the back like 150 feet away) and talk to my old boss who is a commerce floorman now about the fact that he owes me a W2, and tell where I am and that I do want the 1/2 seat. I'm actually second up, so like I'm probably gonna get in. Sailboats has been in the game for like 45 minutes at this point, and the only reason I'm in this mess is that I didn't list myself when I got there, but whatever. So then it happens. I go back to my 40 and get bludgeoned for like 2 racks (somehow I left stuck only like $600 today everyone at my table must have been trying to lose) and the 60...breaks. And then, under cover of darkness, an entire, 9 handed, must move 1/2 is created. They don't call the game down over the speaker...no no. They just sit and play. I walk back to the board and realize I'm now...3rd. And the board was rewritten. "That's weird" i say to myself. I still don't know the second game has even started, so I talk to another floorman who tells me I'm first up. "Great!" I respond. So I go back to the 40 and only then do I realize that howmany, ontherail, and 7 other humans have created an entire full game, which is now cock-blocking me from the main. I am shocked, but not really surprised, and tell the floor to take me off the list.
So that's how I didn't play 1/2 today.
